S1mple thinks he will destroy Valorant teams if he ever made the switch from CS:GO

“I’ll just shoot them in the head,” he said. “I don’t even need skills. That’s why I play Reyna. I don’t buy armor, and I don’t buy flashes. I just buy two spells, Vandal, and let’s go. Let’s get it.”
NAVI’s current Valorant team includes four former FunPlus Phoenix players that VCT Masters Copenhagen, along with Valorant Champions 2021 winner Mehmet “cNed” İpek.
